We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources.

The second phase of the County of Orange’s Dana Point Harbor dredging project, that will pump sand from the Harbor onto Capistrano Beach, has begun.
A black floating pipe has been stretched from the Harbor mouth all the way to the shore at Capo Beach, in preparation for moving sand removed from the Harbor onto the beach.
The first phase, which was completed March 3, placed 7,000 cubic yards of sand onto the shore at Baby Beach.
According to Harbor Director Brad Gross, an estimated 65,000 cubic yards of sand will be placed at Capo Beach.
A final completion date for the entire dredging project was not available at press time.
